Juiced 2: Hot Import Nights
It has it's good points and its frustrating points, but it's certainly a step up from the first Juiced.
Juiced 2 does not try to continue the game play style of the original. Instead, it takes a safer route, and goes with a style similar to that of the newer need for speed games. While there is no free-roam mode, progressi... Read Full Review6 of 6 users found the following review helpful
Pray! Two Worlds, is mayhap the best RPG of the year - Verily! (Okay, so maybe the old English is a little over the top)
Sorry, but it just kind of happens when you've been playing Two Worlds as much as i have. The old English just keeps flying off your tongue, and even though you realize how corny you sound - you just can't help it. Yes, ... Read Full Review3 of 3 users found the following review helpful
Keeping in mind I am a huge fan of action RPG titles like Diablo, Titan Quest, and Dungeon Siege - Silverfall has really impressed me. Overall, it's certainly not going to win any game of the year awards. It feels a l... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
This is going to be a very short and sweet review, which is quite unusual for me. First i would like to say i was very excited when i first heard about Bioshock. I've been a fan of the System Shock games for a while, ... Read Full Review10 of 13 users found the following review helpful
Titan Quest is one of the best Diablo clones i've ever played. You start off practically naked and with nothing but a rather pathetic knife - no skills whatsoever, and no defining class either. This is a little odd fo... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
X-Com Apocalypse is the stand-out title in it's series because of it's truely unique style of gameplay.
X-Com UFO Defense is one of the most highly regarded strategy games of all time. Terror From the Deep, it's sequel, attainted similar scores, but being practically the same game with the slightest hint of a twist, it see... Read Full Review4 of 4 users found the following review helpful
Im probably gonna get a little flamed for this review, but its my honest opinion of the game. Please keep in mind that im a long-time fan of the entire Might and Magic series and their spin offs, and it has a serious eff... Read Full Review6 of 9 users found the following review helpful
Okay, so in case you don't know, here are the basic mechanics of how GalCiv2 plays: You pick to control one of a variety of intersteller races, or create one of your own. You then pick how many you'll face against, an... Read Full Review3 of 3 users found the following review helpful
GTA meets the wild west. And i must wonder - why hasn't this been tried before? It's almost an instant classic.
Alright, so they couldn't really think of a good name - but please, lets not judge this game by its cover, because once you get into it, you realize it really has the potential to start another heavyweight franchise. ... Read Full Review2 of 2 users found the following review helpful
Fahrenheit is a classic adventure game with lots of modern ideas that just calls out to be played by fans of any genre.
In case you havn't noticed, i've decided to refer to 'Indigo Prophecy' as 'Fahrenheit' in my review, because of two big reasons. First, it was released by this name everywhere but the United States, so i feel more people... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
Tony Hawk's American Wasteland
THAW is just more of the same. But thats not a bad thing. After all, the Tony Hawk games dominate the genre for a reason
Tony Hawk's American Wasteland is yet another installation in probably the most popular "extreme sports" games ever made. It doesn't do much to really switch up gameplay, or try to add in anything groundbreaking - but it... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
F.E.A.R. is the king of average games. Oh yeah, it looks pretty - but it doesn't really do anything particularly well.
I think it's safe to say that if you're reading this review, you've also read gamespot's review, and probably several others, and are just trying to get some extra opinions before you fork out your hard earned dough for ... Read Full Review8 of 14 users found the following review helpful
Last year on the Xbox, Fable was released to mixed reviews. Some of these reviews praised it for being a highly immersive game with detailed environments and fun gameplay, and some critiziced the fact that many of the el... Read Full Review4 of 5 users found the following review helpful
A unique RTS game that will instantly hook any fan of the genre, as well as any casual gamer that gives it a shot.
Knights of honor is a blend of classic RTS action, and leader based turn based strategy games like Heroes of Might and Magic. No clicking through the end of your turn here, though - as the whole game is real time, and fo... Read Full Review4 of 8 users found the following review helpful
GTA:SA is just more of what made the other games in the series so succesful. Running, driving, shooting, blowing stuff up, and picking up hookers. But this time - we've got a game world three times bigger, a few new RPG ... Read Full Review0 of 6 users found the following review helpful

Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition
Midnight Club 3 is an instant classic. Fun arcade racing, and deep customization options for many kinds of cars.
Midnight Club 3 tries to combine gameplay from previous titles in the series, while mixing in a dose of Need For Speed Underground like customization. It pulls it off very well. The game features a nice collection of ... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful

Remember the original doom games? You'd walk into a room that looked fairly empty, and all of a sudden a few walls would shoot open and bundles of former humans would come out at you. Well, Resurrection of Evil is just l... Read Full Review2 of 4 users found the following review helpful
A solid WWII shooter. It offers unique gameplay, and more of what made games like 'Call Of Duty' good.
Let me start off by talking about some of the features that make 'Brothers in Arms' a solid WWII shooter. First off, the game is quite engrossing. Explosions surrounding you, dirt, blood, and bullets flying around, Ge... Read Full Review1 of 4 users found the following review helpful
Probably the best japanse RPG to never be officially translated into English by its developer, Squaresoft.
Seiken Densetsu 3 was the third in the 'Secret Of Mana' series of games. (The first in the series had a Final Fantasy title, and the second was plain old Secret Of Mana.) It was the last of the super nintendo era SoM tit... Read Full Review2 of 3 users found the following review helpful

Knights of the old Republic II is everything everyone hoped it could be. I will admit that it doesn't really change any gameplay wise from the original, or graphically, but hey - why fix what isn't broken? The story i... Read Full Review4 of 12 users found the following review helpful

The Corporate Machine
A fair attempt to recreate the goodness of an old school ocean trading sim, mixed with some quirks here and there.
Port Royale 2 is not for the casual gamer. Unless you are really into micromanagement simulators, or the 1600 time period the game is set in, you probably won't last long in Port Royale 2. While the game sports excellent... Read Full Review1 of 7 users found the following review helpful
